With Alexa is there a command to turn the receiver on and off?

Hey BrianP58! 

You can power off receivers using the Google Home App and Google Home devices with the command "Hey Google turn off the  (receiver name here)".  So this should also work with Alexa, though of course the wording of the command would be slightly different. 

If you find it does not please reply back to this thread and I will see what we can do to verify the functionality on Alexa, and if needed, try to get the command added.
